The Raleigh Chopper is a children's bicycle, a wheelie bike, manufactured and marketed in the 1970s by the Raleigh Bicycle Company of Nottingham, England.
The Chopper bike was sold as a "must have" item and signifier of "coolness" The Mk 2 ("Mark 2") Chopper was an improved version sold from 1972.
It had the rarely-purchased option of five-speed derailleur gears, and the gear lever shifter changed from a knob to a T-bar-style shifter.
Its unique design became a cultural icon and is fondly remembered by many who grew up in that period.
The design was influenced by dragsters, "chopped" motorcycles, beach buggys, and even chariots, as can be seen on the centre page of the 1969 Raleigh US catalog.
